Not fair! I want to float around Paris in a giant hamster ball!

I have the signature edition book in my office! Given to me by his son Bing who is a DP (recently on Ironside).

I'd like to imagine that the shots in which they are suspended in midair, they were actually plummeting toward the ground at a high rate of speed, and just after the photo was snapped, the bubble smashed into the earth and the model killed, sacrificed for the perfect shot. Then another beautiful lady was inserted into a ball, loaded into the giant cannon, and the careful calculations were made in preparation for the next shot.

I do too!  But not in those hideous fashions!

Finally, they've mastered Wizard Of Oz Good Witch technology! Are these just prototypes, or can I buy one now?

Did they use a magic flute, and able to send a hippo, a pygmy and a monkey too?

What I'm trying to figure out is how you did that kind of trick photography before computers. Overlay one negative over the other and print? Do a double exposure in the camera?

or... perhaps they suspended the ladies and in balls and took a picture?

Wondering the same, if it was a double exposure or if there was a harness obscured in process.

Essentially. That's why the people are not reacting to, or interacting with, the bubble women. They're not there. They were superimposed.

This technique has been around for as long as there's been photography. It caused quite a stir a century ago with the Cottingley Fairies phenomenon/hoax. Because no one knew back then that you could do that with photos and they assumed all photographs were real.

Yeah, but the Cottingley Fairies were paper cutouts on hidden sticks -- not trick photography.

If Ghostery blocks it, I do not need to see it.
